TENURE TRACK OPEN-RANK PROFESSOR – Early Detection and Intervention Program, AJ Drexel Autism Institute, Drexel University

August 22, 2018

The AJ Drexel Autism Institute (AJDAI) at Drexel University invites applications for a research-focused tenure-track position at any rank, to work in the Program in Early Detection and Intervention. The ADJAI is a multidisciplinary, university-level research institute emphasizing public health science as it pertains to autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The Institute is composed of three research programs, a policy analytics center, and clinical, community outreach, and administrative cores. Faculty conduct community- and population-based research addressing challenges faced by individuals with autism and their families. The Early Detection and Intervention (EDI) Program integrates knowledge across disciplines including psychology, public health, and education, with the specific aims of reducing the age of ASD diagnosis, increasing evidence supporting early intervention, facilitating access to high-quality treatment, and supporting implementation and adaptation of early intervention in the community. Qualified applicants will complement EDI members’ expertise in screening and early intervention science. We are especially interested in applicants whose expertise is in one of the following areas: (1) implementation science, (2) randomized controlled trial methodology, or (3) mental health outcomes and/or psychiatric comorbidities in neurodevelopmental disorders. Candidates whose prior work has focused on other conditions, but seek to apply these methods to ASD research are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have a PhD in Psychology, Epidemiology, Health Services Research, Social Work, Sociology or a related discipline. Post-doctoral training is strongly encouraged. Strong applicants at the assistant level will clearly demonstrate their potential to build a highly productive program of research; applicants at the associate or full level will have an established program. Review of applications will begin September 15 and continue until the position is filled. Start date will be July-September 2019. Interested applicants should send cover letter, CV, and names of three references to: AutismInstitute@drexel.edu. Questions can be directed to DRobins@drexel.edu, with the subject line: EDI faculty position. Drexel University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. drexel.edu/AutismInstitute
